Many are not aware the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce has a 501c3 charitable not-for-profit foundation. This foundation was created in 2005 to serve as a vehicle for community members to invest in community and economic development, and in turn receive a tax deduction.
The Foundation has historically served to fund two main initiatives, the Green Medians Project, which landscaped the middle medians on Cypress Creek Parkway and education scholarships for students graduating from Aldine, Klein and Spring ISD. The Green Medians Project was completed in 2010, basically leaving education scholarships as its main source of activity.
The Chamber has a long tradition of giving to education scholarships to high-potential students with lesser economic means. By providing scholarships to our local students, we are making investments in the future workforce, a need very relevant in today’s tight labor market. the Chamber has made the conscientious decision to double-down on its efforts to raise more money that before with a goal to give scholarships to a greater variety of career paths and for higher amounts. In addition to scholarships for graduates continuing to traditional 2- and 4-year institutions, we also recognize that all students are not college bound and desire to enter directly into the workforce. Therefore, we also offer scholarships for students who are seeking certifications in a range of professions from manufacturing & construction, health care, technology, general business, veterinary and cosmetology.
We are asking that you give generously to the future of Northwest Houston’s economy by investing in our future workforce. By clicking the link below, you can direct your investment to the area of education you desire. Any dollar amount is welcome. Please give.
